My iPad was stolen out of my Carry-on bag after Volaris forced me to check it in with them. When we landed and I collected my bag they forced me to check-in my tablet was gone."
Cons: "Arrived at the gate at 12:05pm as we were in a different gate due to the airport screens being incorrect. The rule for boarding is that the flight closes 15 minutes before departure, which would have been 12:10. Omar Rivera, argued with us for minutes and did not let us board. Horrible service"

Cons: "Not having to walk in the rain to terminal"

Pros: "boarding was quick and easy. price was low compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Where do I start? I booked with them because of the low price and I read other reviews where they were compared to Southwest aArline, whom I like. well, they aren't even close! They don't offer any complimentary drinks, no entertainment, and the seats were horribly uncomfortable on all four planes we rode on. The seat pads were worn out and all you could feel was a metal bar across your tailbone. Try to sleep on that for a red eye flight! Impossible. They sat us near the back of the plane and we had the option to move for an extra fee. I chose not to and regretted this decision because the flight attendants posted up and played cards all night, laughing and talking loudly while the passengers tried desperately to sleep! nevermind the fact that you have to pay extra for a regular carry-on sized bag. This airline is such a joke. Next time I fly to Mexico, I'll just pay extra and fly with a known US carrier. Don't waste your pesos, unless you want to be super uncomfortable."
Cons: "No real food"
Cons: "Llegue 1 hora antes de mi vuelo y no me permitieron hacer mi check in porque “debería estar ahí 1.5 horas antes”. Me indicaron que debería comprar otro vuelo, ya que ellos no hacían cambios. Me tuve que cambiar de aerolínea y adquirir otro vuelo para el día siguiente."
Cons: "The bad is the rules on the baggage"
Cons: "Charge way too much. Charged to pick a seat when doing check in from the app. Only reason doing check in from app was so I wouldn’t get charged for getting boarding pass at desk."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and efficiently. I think they offered soft drinks or snacks but I was asleep."
Cons: "The fact that I was unable to use TSA Pre-Check on this airline."
Pros: "Nothing nothing"
Cons: "They sold my ticket to someone else even though we were in line for 3:1/2 hrs no explenation just ignorance and they dont care i will be filling a complain with consumer rights its just not right why should they get away with corruption"
Pros: "flight left on time"

Cons: "No reclining seats very little leg room"
Pros: "Able to fall asleep as soon as possible during my flight."
Cons: "For starters, when I checked in I was charged for a damn carry on!?!? Super unexpected expense, and in my opinion wrongfully executed. I was told that I had to pay for my carry on or else I could not board the plane. When I asked why, he said it was over the limit, I weighed it and then he said, u have to add the other small bag too. — THE OTHER SMALL BAG WAS A BAG FILLED WITH SOUVENIR ITEMS PURCHASED AT THEIR AIRPORT PRIOR TO ME CHECKING IN! I explained that and of course nothing happened. The viva aerobús person that ran the register is called Jose A. Carrizo #21 badge. 31/12/2021. - The problem is not the amount that I paid, but the fact that customers before me were not asked to pay, even though I could clearly read the numbers on the scale as they weighed it. My bag weighed 10 kg exactly. i weighed it when I packed it. And the other bag was a bag used to carry around souvenirs from the airport. I think this was a bad way to do business and I’m simply not happy about it."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence and very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "3 hours late"
Cons: "Did not my luggage"
Pros: "I liked that they got me to my destination alive."
Cons: "The seats, being on time, docking at the right terminal so we didn’t have to bus to another terminal to go through customs, the food, the check in process... everything was sub par. For a thousand dollar ticket, I’ll never fly Volaris or Viva Aerobús again."
Cons: "Luggage delivery is still incredibly slow!! 20 mins for the first piece"
Cons: "The flight was over 6 hrs late I arrived in the middle of the night... Never again!!"
Cons: "We ran 5 minutes late and were not allowed to board our flight because there was NO ONE at the ticket counter to check us in... And just fly is saying that we cannot use our return flight tickets, so we have wasted almost $1000.00 Unbelievably poor service at the point!"
Pros: "The crew at the front of the airplane were friendly"
Cons: "When sitting at the back of the plane there were some girls with 3 beer cans each playing loud music and it woke up my child. I asked the flight attendant to tell the women to turn down there music and she said no she couldn’t do that if I didn’t like it to tell them myself."

Cons: "Horrible service, rude , dirty , too crowded, over priced ! I was charged for my luggage when I was told it was already included. And apparently they were over widget but the website said I was okay. I even called and tripped check since this was our first time flying with them. They told us to get there at least 3 hour before our flight and they didn’t start checking us in until 3:50 ! I felt rushed after because we didn’t have time to grab a coffee or eat. The workers are rude and disrespectful not helpful at all !"

Cons: "We have a delay on the take Of. The boarding was very slow and we were directly under a 32 C sun."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "This was one of the worst overall flying experiences I’ve ever had. The flight was from Mexico City to Cabo, and i was supposed to take the flight with two friends. We were all later than we wanted to be due to the México City traffic. I arrived one hour before the flight and they arrived exactly 34 minutes before. I remember because we tracked it exactly on our phones as it was happening. When they got to the check in booth the attendant said they were too late to check in and they had to have gotten there 35 minutes before. I have checked the airline online policies and nowhere does it say that. It only says that they can refuse checkin after 30 minutes but I am positive they arrived before that. I will mention here that the plane was about 15 minutes late taking off. So, the airline enforced strict made up policies on its paying passengers and doesn’t uphold any sense of respect to them? The attendant also told my friends they would not get refunded and that the next flight wasn’t until the next night. We are going to Cabo for the weekend so obviously that was out of the question. So, I board the plane and realize why the attendant must have told my friends the plane was closed. There were no empty seats on the plane, which means that they must have given away seats to people on standby. I support this if its a last minute decision after the flight has closed AS IT IS ADVERTISED. Not a made up 5 minutes before. So I boarded and there was absolutely no service. None. The flight attendants came out once and made you pay for WATER. What kind of airline doesn’t at least give water??? I understand the appeal of budget airlines but honestly, this flight was over $200 which is not what I would call “budget” and the airline skimped on the most basic things— water, customer service, and any semblance of human decency. I am thoroughly disgusted with how horrible this airline has been for even a 1.5 hour flight and i plan to not only write as many horrible reviews as I can but to share this terrible experience with as many people as I can so they can avoid being victims to such inhuman treatment. Viva Aerobús should be ashamed to call themselves an airline and Kayak should be ashamed to allow them on their site."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they charge for baggage and food"
Pros: "To my surprise I had to took this trip by time convenience. It was a cheap flight and had never used Viva before. Departed on time and had a great flight"
Pros: "According schedule"
Pros: "Take me to Mx faster than a bus"
Cons: "10 minutes of delay when we take off, then 20 min of delay for parking in CdMx Viva aerobus charge me with 500 mxp for bring two backpacks heavier than 10kgs"
Cons: "7 hrs delay.."
